John Wesley

John Wesley is an American Pop artist whose graphic nudes set minimalistic figures in surreal settings across pastel shades of pink, green, and blue. His work has been shown across exhibition sites from MoMA P.S.1. to the windows of the Hermès store on Madison Avenue. John Wesley's acrylic paintings show imaginary nude figures set against grass greens, baby blues, and pastel pinks, often accompanied by the artist's signature white border. Wesley's images became well-known in the 1960s for their use of traditional emblems, historical figures, comic book personalities, animals, and sexualised women, drawing from advertising materials such as stock photos and tracing paper
